Reading through old posts

I have spent an hour or so this afternoon going through the old posts on this forum and it's quite funny to see how things compare to the launch of the PS3 to the PS4.

It does make an interesting read and it does feel slightly different this time around, whether that is age or not I am not quite sure.

I wonder if I will be looking through posts again in 8 years time and come across this?!... If so, "future Mike, you should be a millionaire now and if not, what are you playing at? Surely you have invented the flying car or time machine by now?"

If you are and have invented either.. Well done

In what way Mike?

I think the stand-out thing for me last time round was how all the media were bought and all the anti Sony vibes, despite them having a better console and one that used more open standards - such as standard PC drives, USB drives/readers, usb charging cables, bluetooth headsets etc. Even back then the PS3 was more consumer friendly, yet the media outlets seemed blind to it. Too much of journalism is broke

Remember I wrote that article about about negative fanboyism? We coined that phrase

I also have to come clean about something - when we first launched Gamesey, I forgot to put an email address in the control panel - so if anyone tried to contact us via the contact form their email would never had reached us I wonder how many devs (if any!) contacted us back then to maybe get involved with testing or interviews etc? I kick myself for that! It was at least a year or two when I realised that the email was missing

Re being a millionaire, I hope you get there soon just don't forget us!

Lol I did the same yesterday... It was quite strange looking back at the posts from just before, and just after the PS3 launch!

It really is, and to think that was 7 or so years ago!

The one that got me was when Uncharted was just a rumor and look what beast that grew into.

I wonder what will be this gen's Uncharted?
